I am 3 months post-hysterectomy - cervix and uterus removed; still have ovaries. My Ob/GYN advised that my ovaries may go dormant for a brief period, which they did but I only had a few weeks of hot flashes, sleep issues and some minor emotional ups and downs. That has all subsided, but I now have acne like I have never had in my life! In addition to the acne on my face it is spreading to my chest, and my skin on my neck and arms feels 'crepey'. Help! A friend suggested HRT or utilizing the OC I had been taking (Femcon) for years. Ideas?
I take 2,000mg of DHEA Fish Oil; 1500mg Calcium, Vit D; Complex B with C daily. Non-smoker, rare caffeine.
I am 3 1/2 months post surgery. I was hollowed out, everything removed and am not taking HRT. I have very mild hot-flashes approx. once or twice a day. Other than that the only issue I aam having is acne. This is most troubling as I am single and dating. Is HRT really necessary? Is their another way to clear up this acne?
